10:01pm
supply, demand economics. a number of refineries shut down for a various number of reasons. one of which is the heat. >> the record heat that has been sweeping was apparently too much for the power grid in southern california. the exxon mobile refinery shut down yesterday after the facility lost power. gasbuddy.com says the heat caused a transformer at a nearby substation to malfunction. combine that with the refinery in richmond, and you have yet another perfect storm for high gas prices. the wholesale cost shot up $1.06 in one week. by friday, retail prices could spike 30 cents. if it keeps up, station owners will have to sell it at $4.75 a gallon to break even. 12 miles to the gallon in the city. blaming high gas prices on the heat is farfetched.

chamber. 50 protesters locked outside doors guarded by police. while those who made it inside called for officers to open the doors. they came here to speak out against the shooting of allen, an oakland teenager who was armed with a gun when officer miguel shot him dead in may. >> miguel masso murdered allen in cold blood and that you are covering up a murder. >> protesters shut down last week's city council meeting, but the council clamps down, banning protesters from sitting in the raptors and setting up overflow rooms instead. >> the rules have alts been very clear. if the crowd is too large for the room, you establish a secondary place where people can watch. >> there are open seats all over this room and they have doors closed. >> the city has suppressed information about their son's death. tonight, after five months, a city council member handed the
10:04pm
family a police report they have been waiting for. their lawyer says the report is heavily redacted and does not include a statement from the officer who shot him. but it does prove that blueford never fired a shot. for the family, it's a step. but far from the justice they say is due. city leaders told me it is unclear whether the balcony's will remain off limits in future meetings, but they did not violate any public meeting laws. ken. >> all right, kristen iowaers, ayres, thank you for that. that is not the worse thing they had to deal with. they opened up five new homicide investigations just since last night. that's right. that's when two men died in separate shootings on mcarthur boulevard. then this morning, two more men gunned down as they sat in a parked car on 72nd avenue.
